Manaslu Circuit Trek is one of its kind and is regarded as one of the best treks in Nepal. It is a great alternative and covers all the primary elements of trekking in Nepal. Surrounded by the Mt Annapurna in the west and Ganesh Himal to the East, Manaslu Circuit Trek is one of the major eye-catching trails. The main attraction of Manaslu Circuit Trek is the panoramic views of the Mt. Manaslu. With an aesthetically pleasing view, trekkers here get lost in the sight of snow-capped mountains, raging white rivers, and culturally enriched valleys. The circuit trek takes from the terrace lowlands of rice and millets through the mighty turquoise gorges of the Budhi Gandaki River. The local people in this region are extremely friendly and helpful with the utmost respect for travelers. The trail passes through the Larkya La Pass(5167m) close to the Tibetan border, with a clear view of cirque glaciers created by Cheo Himal, Himlung Himal, Nemjung, Gyaji Kang and Kang Guru. Regarding the difficulty, the trek is comparable to Annapurna Circuit Trek and Everest Base Camp Trek. The view alone in this region makes the trek a worthwhile journey.
